What's Goin On?
« on: Aug 29, 2021, 04:40:04 PM »
I find it strange there has been zero activity on this forum for the last 3 days.

A. Is there something wrong with the forum software?
B. Has the rest of Australia expired with 'rona?
C. Have all lockdowns been repealed and everybody has gone 4wd/camping?
D. Or is there something wrong with this puta & its operator?     :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:

Well after a week of wet weather, we had a cracker of a day here in East Gippsland, so I was busy in the garden all day.
Today the rain is back and I’ve been in the workshop fitting out the DMax with my camping setup, should we be allowed to go further than 5 k from home ever again.

Certainly has been quiet in here though.

Ahhhh, the tinnitus, isnt that fun.
Ive had mine for as long as i can remember.
Mine is from several severe ear infections as a child through extosies.
I have tried several "cures" none have worked even a tiny little bit.

Mine gets worse when im tired or not well.
At night its horrible and some nights it keeps me awake.

I have been told tgat it varies from person to person.
Mine sounds like a constant hizzzzzz, similar to the noise of an amplifier at full volume with no music input.

Having had it most of my life, i have learned to live with it.
But my doctor tried to get me into a support group as there are people who cannot cope.

Hope yours isnt as bad as mine.
Cheers

Mine is like a cross between the constant hiss from a leaking air hose, and crickets.

Ear infections as a kid in the tropics, and fast motorcycles with poor helmet designs in the late 70's did me in.

Pink Floyd helps.

Ouch.
$5k

I need a hearing aid, my wife is starting to complain about the TV being too loud and not listening to her.

Im holding off until I can get it cheaper as a pensioner.
Im only 63 and a self funded retiree.
I dont have a real lot to waste

Mine was less than $1000 from Costco and works well, fitted by one of their qualified audiologists.

My original pair cost me $2,000 but took them back and updated to a $4,000 pair. :dontknow:

My recent purchase, now on the aged pension, cost me around $850 and they include Bluetooth. The normal retail price is about $4,000 but get a big Government subsidy  :laughing7: :occasion14:

Valkie, I took my advice from a friend who needed 2 hearing aids from childhood.

Buy the best there is.

So I got the bluetooth jobby with an app on my phone, you can pair it to the TV and listen to it as loud as you like, with the TV's own speakers turned off.

Its worth it for the "brownie points", you can also turn off Pegasus  ;D (everlasting nag)

Yeah, i tend to buy quality as it is usually the best and lasts longer.

But i cant justify thousands for a hearing aid at the moment.
When i get into the pension thing, i can get subsidized hearing aids and that makes sense to me.
Its only 4 years away, i have put up with it for the last 10 years, whats another 4?

Also, its not a 1 time purchase.
I'm told to expect about 5 years use before replacement, so next time I will be on the geriatric bludge.
